obama, not a good president, but a terrific campaigner? >> well, it's both. i happen to think least a better president, but that doesn't matter, most of the american people don't think he is. why did he not meet with these heads of state, he went on "the view"? very simple, he's trying to get married women. he does very well among single women but needs to get the margin on married women down. so this is all about now demographics. he's campaigning, and he doesn't care about -- as far as he's concerned, he's in campaign mode, and he'll stay there. and he's good at it. gregg: how important is it for romney to do well in wednesday's debates, in all of the debates? >> if he doesn't do well in this first debate, the game is other. gregg: really? >> there's a lot of people starting to write it off now, the momentum of the polls is going towards the president, he's got to turn this thing back around. gregg: what does "well" mean in your mind? >> he has to put some substance on the table that people are going to be talking about. we're sitting here next week, we have to be talking about ho
of both president obama and his republican challenger, mitt romney, to have a serious second look at sanctions, to try to figure out what additional economic measures are necessary to bring iran's nuclear program to heel. i think that, to a large extempt, is going to determine whether there is military action against iran. quite simply, the sanctions we've applied so far are not having the requisite impact on iran, and more needs to be done. jenna: that was a very interesting editorial in the ine washington post" this week, you said just to review for our viewers, the sanctions are working in some ways, they're not working in others, and can they need to be enforced greater, in your opinion. let's talk about what the american people should expect or trust in this process. you know, why should the american people trust diplomacy when it comes to iran? has there been any evidence that sanctions or diplomacy in the past has worked with this regime and this country? >> well, those are two separate things, and it's clear that diplomacy, at least as attempted by this administration over
to level such a criticism of the -- president obama. he has been a strong leader in protecting this country, as president bush was, and both presidents since 9/11 have put the security of the american people and homeland security as job number one, as they should. they are both strong in that area, and it is unfair to suggest that president obama has let down our guard. the events in libya were tragic. the responsibility for guarding our embassies and consulates overseas -- we don't have american military protecting our embassies. it is the host country that provides perimeter security rapping out diplomatic establishments. we provide security for foreign embassies in washington, d.c. and consulates in new york city to it could lead us down? in cairo, it was the egyptian government that did not have enough security around pmc, and that is why the crowds went over the walls and a trip down the american flag and burned it and put up the black flag of resistance. in libya, it was the libyan security forces that led us down in been gauzy when ambassador stevens was killed. i don't think it is a
to break down the details. plus, on the eve of the first presidential debate both president obama and governor mitt romney are hard at work on their final preps. we'll have an update from the campaign trail next. gregg: there are plans to hold peace talk with the taliban and they've now collapsed, this as nato commander's try to find a new way to boost stability in the region as forces begin to head home. national security correspondent jennifer griffin has the details from the pentagon. how seriously did the u.s. military take these peace talks with the taliban. >> not very. this was essentially a state-department-led idea from with some backing from the white house and the president's national security advisers over at the white house when richard holbrooke was still alive as ambassador and envoy to pakistan he backed the idea because many military commander's believed you could not shoot yourself out of this war, out of the war in afghanistan. the pentagon also never believed that they could negotiate he with elements loyal to mullah omar or the a cane the aquani network. the p
. i was very supportive of both president bush and president obama in afghanistan, mainly because of the hope we can turn around what happens to women. we have the same problem we had in vietnam. when you're working with a corrupt government, people can't work to save themselves, you can't save them no matter what. we need to get out. >> the fight against al qaeda continues not only in afghanistan, but increasingly in north africa. the "washington post" is reporting the white house has held secret meetings to examine the terror group in the region. the al qaeda affiliate there is believed to have gained a large amount of weapons after the revolution in libya. and according to "the post," the white house meetings predate the attacks on the u.s. compound in libya and have included possible strikes against targets in north africa. i think it'll be interesting to hear how these issues are played out in one of the debates, which i believe is focused on foreign policy. i just want the candidates to be asked about this. >> there's also, mika, a front page in the "new york times" that eve
leer round of attack, iran is closer to having a weapon. >> bill: is president obama weak or strong in protecting americans from the iranian nuclear threat? we'll hear both sides so you can decide. >> i want you to remember that the house they were standing in, the house my family has the privilege of living in, that house was built in part by slaves. >> bill: why is the first lady invoking images of slavery to make a point? we will tell you. >> we have a -- (bleep). >> bill: has madonna totally lost it? what the heck she talk being? we'll show you one of the most bizarre displays we've ever seen. caution, you are about to enter the no spin zone. "the factor" begins right now. >> bill: hi. i'm bill o'reilly. thank you for watching us tonight. is president obama protecting us against the danger from iran? that's the subject of this evening's talking points me mow. the campaign is heating up. the iranian minority ahmadinejab in new york today threatening jews and demeaning gay people. that's what the man does. ahmadinejab is also presiding over the building of a nuclear weapon. thus,
to presidential politics. the first debate is coming up on wednesday. usually both sides try to lower expectations for their candidates. that's what president obama did on sunday. but one of mitt romney's leading supporters had a different view. >> i know folks in the media are speculating already on who's going to have the best zingers, who's going to put the most points on the board. governor romney, he's a good debater. i'm just okay. >> i've seen mitt romney do this before. he's going to come in wednesday night. he's going to lay out his vision for america. he's going to contrast with what his view is with what the president's record is. the president's view for the future. this whole race is going to be turned upsidedown come thursday morning. >> national journalist white house correspondent major garrett is with us. good morning. >> great to be with you. >> what surprise might we expect? what's the strategy for these two going into this debate? >> why did governor christie say what he said? he knows governor romney needs an audience. if you look at the national polling data, abc/"washington
now just three days away, and both candidates working on last minute debate prep and as we mentioned earlier, president obama is in nevada where he's holding a campaign rally and journalists confirming, governor romney arrived at boston headquarters to prep. landing in colorado where the debate show downs takes place, anchor special report bret baier. he'll join me with his take. some including the vice-presidential nominee, paul ryan, says a debate could change the game. >> it's possible. you have some columnists writing in this is the super bowl of politics and debates are because the political world and even folks who have been paying attention to politics start to listen and they watch, especially the first date. and standing the challengers standing alongside the president of the united states, confronting some things you've only seen confronted on commercials, that's an opportunity for the challenger to make a mark. >> however, in the big picket, can it change the dynamic completely? i don't know. you have to, you know, depending on races past, one debate doesn't really do it,
his events with this pitch. >> i need you to find people who went out there and voted for obama and convince him to join our team. >> in an interview with fox news, romney and ryan both blasted the president for refusing to call the attack on the u.s. consulate in libya terrorism. when his own administration has already done so. >> it's clear that it was a terrorist act. if al-qaeda assassinates american diplomats, that is an act of terror. that's what this was. that's what has been explained by other member administration. white house doesn't want to admit it. that's what happens. it's a very troubling and disturbing development. >> i think when the president said that the developments in the middle east are like bumps in the road, he badly misunderstands the nature of what is happening in the middle east. not just the assassination of our diplomats but a muslim brotherhood leader becoming president of egypt. 20,000 people killed in syria. development in middle east far from bumps in the road. >> de stating the military with the defense cut. equivocating when you speak overseas
is about primer about policy, primary about personal characteristics or some sort of mix of both. we track major politicians mentioned so we can tell you how often obama is mentioned in acts that are not in the presidential race and how often is mentioned favorably versus unfavorably. we look at whether or not ads mention party affiliation, magic words, a host of additional characteristics. and because we're also analyzing the e.u., not just the reports come we are also now starting in 2010 we started to look at musical characteristics, voiceovers and other emotional appeals. reels of access to the full range of the wisconsin advertising database, and so that is what the leverage in which we can put into context this election cycle compared to those dating back to 2000. we'll have lots and lots more to say this year. if you're not already on our distribution list i encourage you to get in touch and/or you can ascribe directly for website and/or our twitter feed. were also, this cycle also tracking you to the ads will have much more to say about that, too. we have three releases yet to come
